Rating metrics: Outliers can be removed when calculating a mean average to dampen the effects of ratings outside the normal distribution. This figure is provided as the trimmed mean. A high standard deviation can be legitimate, but can sometimes indicate 'gaming' is occurring. Consider a simplified example* of an item receiving ratings of 100, 50, & 0. The mean average rating would be 50. However, ratings of 55, 50 & 45 could also result in the same average. The second average might be more trusted because there is more consensus around a particular rating (a lower deviation).
(*In practice, some albums can have several thousand ratings)

This album is rated in the top 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 79.5/100, a mean average of 79.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.9.

This is an album I absolutely love but wouldn’t openly admit it, a guilty pleasure, because America was a band that could do great singles but then do a song like Muskrat Love which was covered more successfully by Captain and Tennile and would warrant ridicule. However there is no denying this is a great compilation even with the aforementioned song. You also have to give kudos to the fact that the late great Sir George Martin was involved in their career so they have to have something special.

Amazing soft rock. Ventura Highway and Sister Golden Hair are classics

A good career retrospective to a mellow rock band. All the hits that made them famous are here.
